ORLANDO, Fla. – Evermore Orlando Resort, the vacation rental destination bordering Walt Disney World, and Conrad Orlando, the latest addition to Conrad Hotels & Resorts, are now accepting reservations for stays beginning from Feb. 5, 2024.
Developed by Dart Interests, the 1,100-acre resort complex is located close to Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Springs, Universal Orlando Resort, and Orlando International Airport, providing travelers with one of the most sought-after locations in the area. Newly built from the ground up, the Evermore resort complex is a comprehensive redevelopment of the former Villas of Grand Cypress Golf Resort.
“Conceptualized on the premise that one size does not fit all, the unique combination of diverse and sophisticatedly designed vacation rental and luxury hotel accommodations, paired with best-in-class amenities and intuitive service, in a wholly resort-owned environment empowers travelers to design their ideal travel experience from start to finish,” a press release states.
Evermore’s reservation booking system provides guests with a ‘Heads in Beds’ visualization tool, split payments with other guests in their party, and lets them independently manage their unit guest list. The technology also allows the non-booking members of the travel party to get involved as much or as little as they would like. According to hotel officials, the burden is no longer solely on the travel planner as it allows “each member of the party to design a dream vacation that satisfies the preferences of each guest as well as the group overall.”
The entire resort complex will offer more than 150,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor events, with Conrad Orlando offering more than 65,000 square feet of event space, including 19 meeting rooms. Whether looking for a conference room, ballroom, or outdoor location, the resort offers many options for meeting and event planners. The Boathouse and garden lawn nestled on the bay’s edge will provide an Orlando wedding and event locale with a classic Chris-Craft boat for private use.
Upon opening, Evermore will have nearly 1,500 bedrooms spread among an array of options. The resort property will open with 69 houses ranging in size from five to 11 bedrooms, 206 four-bedroom flats, and 41 two- and four-bedroom villas.
Conrad Orlando will offer 433 rooms, including 51 suites and 10 spacious family suites. Additional amenities include 40,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, a spa with an outdoor water garden, a private pool area with a splash pad, private cabanas, a fitness center, an arrival/departure lounge, and numerous dining options, including a signature rooftop experience.
“As we prepare to open Conrad Orlando later this year, we are excited to debut the Conrad brand and evolve our offerings in one of the most sought-after destinations,” says Danny Hughes, executive vice president of Hilton. “Conrad Orlando’s exceptional service paired with the wide range of amenities at Evermore Orlando Resort will provide our guests with an unforgettable experience.”
Guests staying at Evermore and Conrad Orlando will enjoy a 20-acre tropical beach complex surrounding Evermore Bay, an 8-acre crystalline water amenity by Crystal Lagoons that is available for guests of all ages to enjoy year-round. The surrounding beach areas will feature zero-entry swim areas; bars; cabanas; private fire-pits; and an aquatic adventure area with a waterslide, rope swing, and water sports. Other amenities will include a food hall and gourmet market, a casual resort restaurant featuring views overlooking both the golf course and bay, and a two-story Boathouse that will serve weddings and private events.
The Scottish Links Course, Jack Nicklaus’ signature 18-hole Grand Cypress golf course, features a newly reconfigured 18-hole Nicklaus Design course that will open with the resort.
